Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

“I stopped eating rice the day I learnt how much water it takes to harvest a kilogram of paddy.” Sunderlal Bahuguna thus spoke of #carbonfootprint decades before we even started using the term. He could see a looming #climatecrisis like no one else of his time did. 1/4 Image
Bahuguna was one of India’s early environmentalists. He walked 4,700 km from #Kashmir in the North to Kohima in the North-East to draw attention to the destruction of his Himalayan homeland by mega development projects. 2/4
He joined the #Chipko (tree-hugging) movement in the 1970s, started by women in #Uttarakhand to save the hills from loggers. Bahuguna drove the movement forward, till it spread to other parts of #India, including the south. 3/4 Image

I’ve instructed AIMIM #Uttarakhand Pres @DrNayyerkazmi1 to file a police complaint against #HaridwarHateAssembly. It’s a clear case of incitement to genocide. Our team has attempted to file it today but officers in Roorkee were unavailable due to other engagements 1/n
If strict action isn’t taken, then we’ll launch a state-wide agitation demanding arrest & exemplary punishment

The calls for genocide & ethnic cleansing against Muslims are culmination of 60yrs of dehumanising speech by Sangh Parivar against Muslims & Christians 2/n
Most speakers at the event are repeat offenders & enjoy close relationships with powers that be. BJP govts at Centre & state are complicit in this call for genocide

This is why there have been no arrests, no condemnation from govt & not even a whisper from moderate Hindus 3/n

है न अजीब सी बात, चुनाव रूपी समुद्र को तैरना है, सहयोग के लिए संगठन का ढांचा अधिकांश स्थानों पर सहयोग का हाथ आगे बढ़ाने के बजाय या तो मुंह फेर करके खड़ा हो जा रहा है या नकारात्मक भूमिका निभा रहा है। जिस समुद्र में तैरना है,
सत्ता ने वहां कई मगरमच्छ छोड़ रखे हैं। जिनके आदेश पर तैरना है, उनके नुमाइंदे मेरे हाथ-पांव बांध रहे हैं। मन में बहुत बार विचार आ रहा है कि #हरीश_रावत अब बहुत हो गया, बहुत तैर लिये, अब विश्राम का समय है!
फिर चुपके से मन के एक कोने से आवाज उठ रही है "न दैन्यं न पलायनम्" बड़ी उपापोह की स्थिति में हूंँ, नया वर्ष शायद रास्ता दिखा दे। मुझे विश्वास है कि #भगवान_केदारनाथ जी इस स्थिति में मेरा मार्गदर्शन करेंगे।

Thread #Haldwani case:
After extreme rainfall in #Uttarakhand, a bridge failed across Gaula river near Haldwani

Rain wasn't sole cause, it just brought d collapse a bit earlier

Himalayan rivers exit mountains & enter plains with great intensity & it is a critical zone
It is in this critical section is Haldwani where the Gaula river exits the himalayas and enters plains. Rivers bring huge amount of sediments with them to settle as well as they have high intensity flows during monsoon to erode

Visual shows the location of the bridge that failed
Failure of a bridge is nothing new in the region. The previous bridge across the Gaula river (shown with old satellite image below) had collapsed in 2008 after floods

अब मैं आपको आज, 12 अक्टूबर रात्रि 9.47 अष्टमी तिथि के प्रारम्भ होते ही कवल्था/ कालीमठ #Uttarakhand में माँ काली के मंदिर में विशेष पूजा के दर्शन करवाती हूँ।
मुझे इस विशेष पूजा जानकारी @alok_bhatt जी से मिली, आज संध्या 7 बजे से यहीं हूँ 🙏🏻
मंदिर में माँ काली की कोई प्रतिमा नहीं है, शुम्भ निशुम्भ, रक्तबीज के वध के बाद काली को शांत करने जब भगवान शिव उन के चरणों में लेट गए, तब माँ काली एक कुंड में अंतर्ध्यान हो गयीं। रजतपट श्री यन्त्र से ढके इस कुंड की पूजा साल में केवल शरदिया नवरात्री की अष्टमी को ही की जाती है।
अष्टमी की मध्यरात्रि को कुछ मुख्य पूजारी ही कुंड में समायी माँ काली की पूजा करते हैं, और दिव्य शक्ति दर्शन के लिए मंदिर को खोला जाता है।
दर्शन कीजिए 🙏🏻

The #UttarakhandHighCourt to hear a batch of #Covid-19 PILs.

Matter being heard by a bench of the #ChiefJustice and Justice Alok Kumar Verma.
Chief: If you read the newspapers, the reports are alarming.

We had 25,000 tourists coming to Nainital on the weekend. No one is wearing masks, hardly anyone uses sanitisers because sanitisers are not being provided.

#UttarakhandHighCourt #Covid19
Chief: Why are we not adhering to the Centre’s instructions?

#DeltaPlus variant is on the rise and the #thirdwave will strike us by second week of August according to WHO.

#UttarakhandHighCourt to hear today: #Covid-19 PILs.
Court addresses the data presented to the cabinet and Court.

Court to Dr. Ashish: Why have you used different units throughout the affidavit?

Even for Kedarnath, you have given data for just three months- 6536.

You are not allowed to take the #HighCourt for a ride.
The question is not how many people are visiting, it is how the data is being cleverly presented to the Court.

If we find the litigant is not coming with clean hands, we have to take a very serious view of the situation.
